Steve Loomis, president of the Cleveland Police Patrolmen’s Association, cited his service in the US Navy when he told WKYC-TV he was astounded that Browns management knew of the protests but allowed it to occur. “I am not going to participate or work with management that allows their players to disrespect the flag and the national anthem,” Loomis said.

NFL week 16 round-up: why the Denver Broncos’ Super Bowl repeat hopes were dashed

A blowout loss to the Kansas City Chiefs has officially ended the Super Bowl title returning to Denver – and there’s more to blame than just the quarterback

The Denver Broncos season unofficially ended shortly before half-time during Sunday night’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs. Down 21-10 with time running out in the second quarter, they lined up as if they were going to attempt a 53 yard field goal. Instead, kicker Brandon McManus took the ball, ran … and failed to pick up the first down. The Broncos wouldn’t score again as the Chiefs would go on to win 33-10, securing a return to the playoffs while eliminating the reigning Super Bowl champions from postseason contention.

When the kick sailed right, Cleveland’s small crowd erupted in celebration and Browns players poured off their sideline as if they had just won the Super Bowl. The Browns avoided becoming the second team to go 0-15, and no longer have to worry about joining the 2008 Detroit Lions as the only teams to lose all 16 games.
